Carlton Davis III
CB - TB
According to Josina Anderson, Carlton Davis III agrees on a three-year, $45M deal to remain with Tampa Bay.
After rumors of Davis expecting a departure from the 2020 World Champs, he decided to re-sign a three-year, $45 million contract with the Buccaneers on Monday. With both J.C. Jackson and Davis off the market, Stephon Gilmore remains the top option left for CB needy teams.
According to the Bucs Pewter Report, the Bucs are expected to let CB Carlton Davis III hit free agency to gauge his market value.
After using the franchise tag on WR Chris Godwin, the team decided to let veteran CB Carlton Davis hit the open market to get a sense of his market value. The team was unwilling to meet on a contract or willing to tag the CB which would cost them slightly over $17 million this season. Last season, Davis recorded 33 tackles, 11 pass breakups, one interception, and had one fumble recovery.
Buccaneers' CB Carlton Davis (knee) did not participate in Thursday's practice, per the team's official injury report.
Davis' availability for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Panthers now seems to be in doubt. Tallying 40 tackles and four interceptions this season, Davis is a vital component of the Tampa Bay defense. Continue to monitor his status into the weekend but if Davis ends up being ruled out, the Panthers' wide receiving corps will stand to benefit.
Bucs CB Carlton Davis (abdomen) is questionable for Week 6 against the Packers.
Davis is a true game-time decision after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. His absence would be a big boost for Davante Adams, though the Packers' No. 1 wideout is a top-five play either way.
Rookie cornerback Carlton Davis, who dressed but did not play in Saturday's game because of an undisclosed injury, returned to practice Monday. All that can be said about the injury as he was seen with his ankle wrapped at one point Saturday when Tampa Bay was playing Tennessee in their second preseason contest.
Carlton Davis should be on IDP owners radars, he has had a solid camp and played well in the first preseason game. He is in the thick of things along with M.J. Stewart and Vernon Hargreaves for playing time with veteran starting cornerback Brent Grimes.
